    F-I-G-H-T the Spiritual Battle (Part 1 “F”)

    Published on

    There’s no getting around it. We are in a spiritual war. We aren’t in a war with people, although that happens. The battle is with our scheming, vile, enemy—the devil.

    The apostle Paul was perfectly clear about what kind of war we’re in when he wrote to the struggling believers in Ephesus (and to us today) instructing, “stand firm against all the strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” (Eph. 6:11-12 NLT)

    At first glance, these words might cause us to be a little fearful and even intimidated. How is it possible to defeat an invisible enemy? What does it take to win such a war?

    The key to victory does not come by human means or worldly strategies. It comes first and foremost through faith In Jesus Christ.

    God’s word is explicit, “For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.” (1 John 5:4-5 NLT)

    Bottom line … winning the spiritual fight is absolutely possible but ONLY through faith in Jesus Christ.
